I’ve longed complained that mobile data phone plans are overpriced. That is, the price you pay to use your smartphone and it’s mobile data capabilities. I have owned a Treo 650 and a 700W, but I gave the device up because I’m unwilling to pay Verizon Wireless $40 a month for slow mobile data.
T-Mobile recently announced they’re dropping the price of their “Total Interenet” plan to $19.99 a month, down from $29.99. Also, you can do e-mail only Blackberry service for a mere $9.99 a month.
At this price, mobile data becomes realistic in my eyes and those of my friends and family. I pay roughly $40 a month for my broadband home internet access (which I can do *alot* more with then compared to a tiny screen on a cell phone). I believe the sweet spot for mobile data plans is an additional $10 to $20 month on top of your normal monthly calling plan.
